SAL Dues Notice

To all members( including duel members and Jr. members)  of the Squadron 29 of the American Legion – Marietta

Good morning!  Do to the fact that the National Sons of the American Legion have raised our membership costs – we at Post 29 in Marietta must do the same.  Effective immediately our dues for the year 2019-2020 will go from $20.00 to  $25.00.  This is the first increase in our dues in over 15 years.  Our duel member and Jr. member costs will remain the same at $10.00  per member. 

Sr. Vice Commander Randy Wright and Adjutant Tom Rieger have the new cards to handle renewal and new members.  Please try to take advantage of the early bird special – a free breakfast in Oct. – so renew and sign up early to take advantage of this special offer.  

Last year we had 72 new SAL members of Post 29 – Let’s all try to continue to recruit folks that qualify to be SAL members and who are interested in helping veterans and helping the entire American Legion Post 29 family become stronger, better and more viable in the community! 

If you have questions about the increase in dues or any activities / issues with the SAL do not hesitate to give me a call.  I look forward to being of service to each of you and please know that it is a honor for me to serve as your Commander.

Trip To Murphy, NC

The Post is planning a trip to Murphy, NC to have an afternoon of fun, gambling, and fellowship.  It is open to all post members. The trip will be Thursday July 25th – we will leave the post promptly at 9AM and depart from Murphy around 4:30 pm.   This is not a legion sponsored event, but an event put together by Milton Dickson.  We plan on having two vans that will hold 15 people each.   The cost of the trip will be approximately $20 per person to cover gas, and insurance.  No smoking on the buses, but we will make stops on the road. Each participant will be given $20 in slot machine credits to play on the machines.  It will be based on first come, first served.

Contact Milton Dickson 678-429-9359 for reservations.
